Bielefeld, Germany, January 31, 2022 - BST GmbH, based in Bielefeld, Germany, will present four new products for quality assurance in the finishing and processing of all types of flexible, web materials at this year's ICE Europe in Munich, Germany, March 15-17, 2022 (Hall 6, Booth 480).
Precision, performance and intuitive operation - the solutions from BST combine all of this
After having to cancel major presence trade fairs last year, BST can finally present four new solutions for quality assurance live at this year's ICE Europe.
Object-oriented web guiding with BST CLS CAM 100
The BST CLS CAM 100 is oriented to freely selectable objects and requires neither a supplementary control line nor an additional trigger sensor/signal for precise web guiding. Instead, any object can be defined directly in the print motif as a control criterion. This is done particularly intuitively by touch on the 10-inch touch screen or directly on the sensor. "In addition to precision and performance, the greatest strength of the BST CLS CAM 100 is its foolproof operation. Setup takes place with minimal effort. Visitors to our booth can experience this directly on the object," explains Ingo Ellerbrock, Head of Product Management at BST.
Print images - Easy and more precise monitoring with BST PROView
Another highlight that BST will be demonstrating at the trade show is the new BST PROView video web monitoring system. The system, which is suitable for both narrow and wide webs, can be ideally adapted to the needs of users thanks to its modular design. In addition to two camera and lighting units in different sizes, they can freely choose from various expansion options. BST PROView delivers reliable top performance in real-time print image monitoring: While the eye no longer realizes print speeds of 1,000 meters per minute, this is where BST's latest camera-based monitoring system comes into its own. Simplicity was also the focus in the design of BST PROView: from commissioning via plug-n-play, through intuitive operation, to convenient remote maintenance.
BST TWINStar Register Guidance - Made for Converting Presse
In addition, BST will present the compact register control system BST TWINStar at the ICE in Munich. This solution combines the proven and leading BST sensor technology with state-of-the-art, intuitive operation. With its two control points, the BST TWINStar is ideal for hybrid printing and converting presses and offers practical functions such as front-to-back register control. The system can also be conveniently integrated into other press environments via Profinet. In addition, the ease of operation is once again particularly noteworthy. "Usability has gained in importance in recent years. Instead of nested menus, the operation of the BST TWINStar therefore follows a One Click - One View philosophy," says Ingo Ellerbrock.
All these solutions, which impress with their precision, performance and intuitive operation, are part of the broad BST product portfolio for quality assurance and process optimization. For an ideal end product and an efficient production process, 100% control of the material web and its surface quality in the finishing process is essential. One more reason why BST is placing a further focus here at ICE:
100 % Quality - High-End Surface Inspection BST iPQ-Surface
Whether in extrusion, coating, battery cell production or printing machines, for example: Surface inspection only works perfectly if camera, illumination and defect classification are perfectly matched. This is exactly what the latest surface inspection system BST iPQ-Surface does. It is a particularly user-friendly system, as the user can teach the BST solution defect classes, which are then automatically assigned to increasingly better defects. In addition, the BST system is able to interact with the existing network and machine and to fit into the existing IT landscape. As a member of the BST iPQ family, BST iPQ-Surface combines state-of-the-art camera technology with innovative multiplex lighting and makes even the smallest defects visible in a compact installation space. "The special feature of a BST iPQ-Surface system is the optimal combination of the individual components. This creates the best solution for individual applications: flexible, modular and, above all, demand-optimized," reports Ingo Ellerbrock
In addition to these four aforementioned product innovations, the Bielefeld-based company will also be demonstrating proven systems and solutions at its booth. "ICE Europe was and is the leading trade show for the converting and printing industry. We are pleased that the show is finally taking place again after two years and that we can once again bring our products to life here. Especially the intuitive operation of our BST CLS CAM 100 will inspire the visitors of our booth," Ellerbrock looks expectantly towards ICE Europe 2022.
